Is it true that the tailfin of the A310 is slightly lower than on the A300, roughly 50 cms?
The vertical stabiliser height on the A300 and A310 is the same at 8.3 m.
What you are seeing is just different gear heights, weights, and CG position, and the effect of a longer fuselage.
Best way for me to illustrate this giving you the heights to the forward and aft cargo bays.
Height of forward cargo floor above ground (Empty/Maximum Ramp Weight forward CG//Maximum Ramp Weight aft CG)
A300 - 2.73/2.55/2.68
A310 - 2.62/2.48/2.58
Height of aft cargo floor above ground (Empty/Maximum Ramp Weight forward CG//Maximum Ramp Weight aft CG)
A300 - 3.09/3.01/2.92
A310 - 2.70/2.60/2.55
