We study T3 Gowdy spacetimes in the Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton-axion system and show by the Fuchsian algorithm that they have, in general, asymptotically velocity-term-dominated singularities. The families of the corresponding solutions depend on the maximum number of arbitrary functions. Although coupling of the dilaton field with the Maxwell and/or the axion fields corresponds to the 'potential' which appears in the Hamiltonian of vacuum Bianchi IX spacetimes, our result means that the spacetimes do not become Mixmaster necessarily.
