A US soldier has been arrested on charges of providing material support to Islamic State terrorists.

Ikaika Kang, 34, is stationed in Hawaii with the 25th Infantry Division but he served in Iraq in 2011 and Afghanistan two years later.

According to the complaint filed in the US District Court in Honolulu, Kang has sworn allegiance to Islamic State.

An 26-page affidavit by FBI Special Agent Jimmy Chen says Kang helped buy a drone for IS to use against American troops.

He also said he wanted to use his rifle to "kill a bunch of people", the document continues.

Kang is accused of copying secret documents in 2015 and trying to pass them to Islamic State through what turned out to be undercover FBI agents.

It is also alleged that he made combat training videos for IS fighters.

FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said that SWAT team special agents arrested him on Saturday.

The arrest followed an investigation that has lasted for more than a year.

The FBI has said they believe he was a "lone actor" who had no known associations with anyone who might pose a threat to Hawaii.

Kang enlisted in December 2001 and was assigned to the Army's Schofield Barracks on the island of Oahu.

According to his military service record, he was an air traffic control operator at Wheeler Army Airfield (also in Honolulu) and held the rank of Sergeant First Class.

He made a brief appearance at court on Monday and will face a detention hearing on Thursday.

Kang's lawyer Birney Bervar told the Associated Press that he had only been able to talk to his client for a few minutes so did not yet know much about the case.

The 'caliphate' is all but lost, yet Islamic State's threat remains potent .
<p>For a time, the caliphate really did exist: a terrifying medieval prophecy sprung to life and captured in the pitiless freeze-frames of propaganda videos. Even as U.S.-led forces in Iraq and Syria deal decisive blows to the Islamic State, the group remains a potent threat.</p>In 2014, ensconced amid the looted bank vaults of Mosul and on the killing fields of Raqqa, the Islamic State was at the apex of its strength. From its twin bases in Iraq and Syria, it subjugated millions, dispatched operatives to strike the capitals of Europe, bestrode the cyberspace battlefield, and beheaded captive Americans and other foreigners whom the world's mightiest militaries were powerless to pluck to safety.
