When Todd is punching a gas tank, most of the impacts sound like a fist against a metal tank, but it collapses and rebounds like a stuffed bag. Close-up shots of his fists show a piece of metal.

Todd was born in 1996, and spent the first 17 years of his life in military training, meaning it ended in 2013 or early 2014. However, one the battles listed on his record is dated 2012, and his confirmed kills from that battle are way too high for a "training mission."

In the montage of Todd's training, during a run an obese boy falls behind and is killed on the spot. Considering how every aspect of the soldiers' lives is so tightly regimented, the boy should have never gotten overweight.
