Does anyone know what is the difference of the rudder system (vertical tail) in each aircraft (as such Boeing, Airbus and Concorde)? I am happy if you leave a massage to share your suggestion .__________________

The Vertical tail (stabalizer) on any A/C does not necessarily mean you are talking about the rudder system. While each manufacturer will have different designs to mount the vertical stab to the A/C they pretty much use forged castings that would bolt or pin the stab to the A/C (keep in mind these are big pins or bolts). As for the rudder systems they are then attached to the vertical stab and as before they may have a different design but the concept is the same. Hydraulic pressure is used to move actuators to move the rudder position left or right with cables being used as a backup. Now this is on large A/C, the smaller ones may use just cables or even electric motors. Hope that helps alittle.
