No information.

That being said, the Mk. 82 bears a striking resemblance in both size and shape
to the "Fat Man" bomb dropped on Nagasaki on 9 August 1945, so it may have the
same yield as well, which is approximately 20 kilotons.

"Little Boy" was dropped on Hiroshima on 6 August 1945, with an approximate
yield of 13 kilotons.

There was, to my knowledge, neither a "Little Man" nor a "Fat Boy".... (^_^)
