In the same episode of 08MST, we do see the Zaku I take out the
villagers with an anti-personnel mine. I wouldn't say that MSes are
helpless against infantrymen. Anyway, in MS Era, there is a picture of
two infantrymen trying to take down a Dom with a light anti-tank weapon
(LAW). It mentions that the LAW is nicknamed "Bamboo Spear" by the
infantrymen. Perhaps it's a reflection of its' usefulness.
