The cruciform tail is an aircraft tail design which consists in having the horizontal fins in the lower part of the horizontal stabilizer, which gives it a similarity to T-tail but giving more space in the top like in standard tail.
In turbine jets this configuration gives enough room to place two engines in the rear fuselage like in T-tail designs, which has become very common to see in business jets, though it can be seen in SUD Aviation Caravelle as the only jet airliner to feature this configuration.
