What were the map sizes on those film frames?
I never have investigated for that detail.

Like did map boys copy a specific map area from paper map for you as positive film in specific size (square kilometer per frame, like 1:2500000 in 36x24mm frame size) so one frame could show 90x60 km area.

Like did the system be able hold multiple frames that got switched between, and aircraft position synced to it on waypoint?

This guy has made a Tornado INS map and display work - it'll answer a lot of questions...

Have a look at:

Although this is the Tornado Moving map display, the Tornado/Harrier/Jaguar moving map are very similar in operation.
