I worked with radars in real life with MTI/TWS and I know quite well how things work.

That's interesting, I was unaware of actual combat multi-trageting kill. Could you please tell us in what engagement this did happen ?
Thanks

F-15C shot down 2 Serb MiG-29s with a 2TWS shot.

There are better sources than keypublishing for this but I don't have time to look for them right now.

It's better than AIM-120 Wiki page which talks about 6 kills by 6 F-15C and 2 F-16 during this conflict.

No problem. There were 3 120s launched in that engagement, I strongly suspect the first one failed to connect (or, it hit but AFTER the two TWS missiles which were launched later - yes, this is very possible and you can see it happen in DCS). Reason: Impact timing - therefore, the two TWS-guided missiles were the ones that hit.

Still I wonder how they can assess which missile did hit in the heat of the battle ?

Timing. The first missile was launched well before the other two. Although, there's a possibility that all three hit as well.

There's a specific range less than max range (specific to the shooting situation) that if you launch before it, and after it (missile shorts A and B), B will arrive before A.
