How is the ATR 42/72 empennage considered? Is it a T-Tail or a cruciform tail? From the image the elevators are placed quite high on the tail that they can be considered as a T-Tail but is it so?
Looking at the tail of a 727 the elevators are placed at the top of the tail but just leaving the space for the mechanism to move them, whereas on the ATR they are placed in a slightly lower position.
Are there any technical specifications and measurements that clearly define the difference between the two mentioned configurations?
I understand that cruciform means "similar to a cross" but it would be interesting to know, as previously mentioned, if there are specifics about this definition making it clear for everyone from a technical point of view. (briefly, when does a T-Tail become cruciform?)
