Engines, I suppose it depends what you mean by a near crawl.
The touchdown position on an axial flightdeck is similar to that of a conventional carrier - about 45m (150ft) from the stern, but no arrestor gear is required, as the aircraft uses its brakes to come to a stop within a distance of 90-150m.
They could always give it a hook, I suppose...
