The electronic structure and quantum conductance of rotationally invariant (6,6)/(12,0) and rotationally non-invariant (5,5)/(8,2) superlattices made of metallic carbon nanotubes are investigated. It is shown that, except in the limit of very large periods, the quantum conductance of such superlattices does not critically depend on their rotational invariance, although it does in case of quantum dots and single junctions made of these nanotubes.
