@Timotheus: I think we have at least three, possibly five or more. They were already referred to in plural (as 'some'), and there's also the heavy variant we have somewhere on the deck.
@Durlyn: this is an everybody thread.
@Tohya: We have a cap of 300 people to commit, far less if we're only counting dedicated (like Durlyn) or at least semi-dedicated (like Ash) warriors. Also our ballistae have been demonstrated to have the ability to shoot almost straight down (thanks Goji), if not completely straight down, so we can just use those if we fly overhead. That ballista on the ground is big enough to do serious damage to our airship, however its size also limits how far 'up' it can be pointed, and also slows down the operators' ability to move it, as evidenced by the fact that once we gave away our location and allegiance with the signal flares, the crew turned the weapon to us... quickly enough for us to identify their intent but too slowly to take a shot at us once we were moving again. Either it was not intended for anti-air combat, or whoever designed it sucks at their job.
