Landing was "troublesome" for many players. Apparently the real F-16 responds to a heavy landing (within limits) with a bounce but the first release of the sim collapsed the undercarriage in this situation.
Read Chapter 3 of your manual. I found it very difficult to avoid either scraping the tail or collapsing the gear, so I adopted a "shallow and fast' approach... ( sounds like a good philosophy for living! ).
I simply kept the airspeed at about 170 kts and flew the plane all the way to the deck. That's one way to do it!
