So, the large number next to the fraction is compas heading to be flown between waypoints. Top number in fraction is distance (in KM in this case), and the bottom number shows time required (in minutes) to fly that leg.

Note however that the distance is measured, while the time and compass heading is calculated according to wind conditions and compass errors.

That's the way VFR maps are drawn, whether in military or civil aviation.

I would assume it's the desired track, most likely true track IRL but map (ME) track in DCS, not heading. Thus measured as well. But indeed, compass heading need to be calculated.

Do you mean substracting 6 degrees?

Yes, the variation, to get magnetic heading.
To get compass heading you need to take wind into account. A lot of information on that around the net.
To be picky, the aircrafts effect on your compass (has a name I forgot) shall be included as well, but I don't know if it's modeled. In real aircrafts there shall be a placard with correction values for different magnetic headings to be used.
But I never do these calculations, except the 6 degrees. In the Mi-8 use the dopler navigation equipment.

LOL
It was supposed to be a link to a 2016 thread asking the same question regarding the stock campaign briefings, and a note that it was explained in some of the following pages.

The image is from the Military and aviation thread...
